Lethal Autonomous Robots and Responsibility

Science, Technology, and Society Program
Spring 2012 Colloquium Series
Date:  Thursday Feb. 23,  2012
Time:  3:30 – 5:00 p.m
Location:  Rodman Room, Thornton Hall, University of Virginia

In the second STS colloquium talk of 2012 Merel Noorman, a postdoc at the STS department, will present her current research on autonomous military robots and responsibility. One of the primary ethical concerns about future military robots is that these technologies will further obfuscate the distribution of responsibility, as they become more complex and increasingly capable of autonomous operation. Who will be held responsible when these robots make life and death decisions? In her talk, Merel will take a closer look at the discourse on autonomous military robots in order to explore how we can best address such concerns.
